Question about Frigidaire GLTR1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes

I replaced the front door switch in my Frigidair front load washer. I tested it and the cycle worked great. I then put a small load of clothes in the washer. 1 bath towel, 3 hand towels, bath mat and some wash cloths. The washer did not spin the clothes dry. It the same thing that it was doing before I replaced the door switch however, the washer spins at high revolutions without any clothes in the tub. I'm ready to tear my hair out. So far I've spent $375 to fix this machine. Replaced the bearing & outer tub and the door swtich. Can you help?

    Just like the above, i replaced the door switch and shocks, but my tub seems to be out of balance because when it does try to spin the tub shakes real bad and the machine stops it self. I have leveled the machine, but I see the tup move when i watched the cycle with the lower panel removed. I too am about to pull my hair out!!

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

Doesn't dry clothes in spin cycle- spins but not enough

so it is the spin cycle that does not work that is the drum does not turn. Have you tried other levels such as delicate wash and see if spin works. LASTLY, disconnect power and reconnect.

Model #ftfb4000fs1 frigidaire front load washer will not go into final spin --- drains but will not spin dry

Just had this problem last week. The problem was the door switch, which made no sense to me since the drum still turned on the other cycles. But the repair shop replaced the ($76!) switch and the machine now works fine.

Kenmore 44052 will not spin. Replaced door switch still will not spin. Ran diagnostics (code E43) so I replaced motor control board still will not spin. Could not get out of diagnostics so I replaced...

Have you pulled the pump and checked for obstructions? There may be something in the pump itself; you will need to check that...


If your problem can't solve, keep in mind that the error codes means physical wrongs, so, E43 is a door-locking problem or "board comunication problems".

I hope this helps.

My wash machine wash the clothes but not doing the final spin, all the clothes all soak and wet

Handyman here -

Its possible that the door is not locking properly. If the door doesn't lock the machine will wash, but not spin the clothes dry. If you wait 15mins or so after machine is done, then set cycle to spin, it will pump any water that has dripped off your clothes out, but again it will not spin. Helps a little.

Good Luck!

Front load pumps out water, DOESN'T SPIN, but DOES "tumble"

The pressure switch or pressure switch tube could be blocked tricking the machine that it still has water in it therefore not advancing into 'spin mode'.

Or the electronic card could be faulty and require replacing.

Kenmore front load wet clothes

Before going further it is important to determine if the machine is reaching full spin. Make sure the unit is set to MAX extract and watch the inner tub. The tub should be spin really fast (1000 rpm's or better) during the final spin. If not you have lost one of the phases on the motor.
